Web-based Data Management System Supports Maritime Research

With their web-based data management system DSHIP, the German-based company Werum Software & Systems supports maritime research on board research vessels. As can be seen on the Instagram profile of the current climate research expedition MOSAiC in the North Polar Sea, research work on the high seas may be fascinating, but it is also extremely laborious, fragmented and highly complex. As they depend on various environmental conditions such as wind speed or water temperature, hardly any of the measurements taken can be repeated – a huge challenge for both the crew and the technical equipment. Easy to Operate Vast quantities... (read more)

UTEC Completes Survey Subcontract for McDermott in the Middle East

UTEC, a global surveying company in the Acteon subsea services group, completed consecutive as-built and post-construction anchor debris clearance surveys using remotely operated vehicles (ROV) for McDermott International. The company mobilized a DP2 offshore support vessel in early December 2019 with work- and observation-class ROVs and a nearshore survey workboat for the as-built campaign. The anchor debris clearance campaign used the same vessel with a sub-bottom profiler, a side-scan sonar, a multibeam echosounder and a magnetometer. Geophysical Survey in Shallow Waters  “We are delighted to have completed these surveys,” said Nadir Rahmatullah, UTEC commercial director for Asia Pacific and the Middle East.... (read more)

How to Simplify Survey Reporting

Wouldn’t it be great to work on a hydrographic project without spending a lot of time looking for all the elements needed for a professional report? This was what Sanyal Sunil had in mind when he developed SURge, a digital tool to simplify survey reporting. Wouldn’t it be great to work on a hydrographic project without spending a lot of time looking for all the elements needed for a professional report? This was what Sanyal Sunil had in mind when he developed SURge, a digital tool to simplify survey reporting. Hydrographic survey reporting has always been a headache for surveyors in the field, as they have to spend a lot of time formatting the reports, finding the correct logos and diagrams, displaying observations schematically, and carrying out irrelevant calculations, all of which have to be neatly represented in the report but have nothing to do...

This is How Underwater Instruments can Support Pioneering Tsunami Research

High-accuracy, long-endurance underwater instrumentation from Sonardyne Inc. is set to play a major role in helping scientists across the US better understand and possibly predict earthquake and tsunami risk at a far greater scale than has been possible before. Scripps Institution of Oceanography, through a US$5.5 million grant from the US National Science Foundation (NSF), is procuring equipment to be used by the broader scientific community to study seafloor deformation. Comprising more than 50 Sonardyne Fetch subsea sensor logging nodes, this major new equipment pool will also include Sonardyne’s advanced acoustic positioning modules fitted to three Liquid Robotics Wave Gliders....
